Co-habitation or living together agreements
As marriage rates decrease, there is a growing trend of parties choosing to co-habit. There is a presumption that the concept of common law husband and wife exists – it does not and many parties, especially when separating, find that they have little or no legal protection. It is therefore important to consider all issues relating to co-habitation from the beginning of a relationship or if that relationship is ending.
There are also other areas which need to be considered for children including that of child maintenance and child support. For example, applications made need to be made Children Act 1989, section 15 and Schedule 1 applications.

Great mirror will produced by Ms Spanner, it was so easy to do and she kept us updated at all times. We used the MS Trust special promotion and was well worth it. I would highly recommend Barrett & Co.
It is our first time to purchase a property in UK and we are not clear about the details and trick in the conveyancing process. We are lucky to have Piers and his team, Emma and Fatima to handle our case. Like everyone who want to complete the deal before the stamp duty holiday, we keep pushing the schedule. They are very responsive and patient to our enquiry. Instead of just "close the deal", they provide very professional advice to those critical issues on the tile. While protecting our interest in the legal point of view, they facilitate the process to meet the target schedule too. Piers' team did a amazing job. Highly recommend.
I was very happy indeed with the service I received: prompt, professional and sound advice, at a reasonable price. The resulting output has been both useful and specifically tailored to my needs. The practice was approachable and efficient; highly recommended.
I'm very grateful to have Barrett and Co as my solicitor for purchasing a house recently. Thanks to Piers and his colleagues for their responsive actions and efficient works. Very impressed that they often give me timely update on the overall status, also the detailed and prompt replies regarding my questions. Highly recommended!
Barrett and Co handled my divorce and other related matters between July 2019 and May 2021. I felt well-supported throughout my case, and was treated with the utmost empathy and understanding through a difficult time. Aadil Khan managed my case during the last few months and was instrumental in securing a fair outcome for me. I was provided with timely, professional and targeted guidance, which helped me navigate a complex case. Thanks for all your support!
I made a Will with the aid of Barrett & Co solicitors LLP and ,more recently, I added a Codicil. On each occasion I was treated with the utmost respect and I was given very sound advice. This firm also assisted in the sale of my house in a very efficient way. I highly recommend this firm for all legal needs.
The professional and personal attention we got from Barrett & Co was exceptional. From my first contact with Claire who arranged the first online meeting with Juliette who then handled all our needs with great care and considerstion for the delicate time we were going through. Juliette was very considerate of my dads slight language barrier with detailed help along the way. I would highly recommend them.
We contacted Barrett & Co to get advice on Wills and Power of Attorneys. Our primary contact was Juliette who was approachable and professional throughout the process. She gave advice based upon our particular circumstances and not just generic feedback. I would highly recommend Juliette and Barrett & Co.
